Nico Duportal and his Rhythm Dudes, bring us an album of big full bodied, brassy rocking and jumping rock n roll.

The booming baritone sax and delightful piano underscore these tracks and drive the whole thing along like a well oiled engine room. Nico’s guitar sounds great leading the band through a high energy set that is full of great jiving and strolling material. With steady backing from bass and drums the tenor sax adds a vibrant blast throughout, the vocals are spot on and have a real bluesy feel too.

I enjoy the way in which the band can confidently switch from full throttled rhythm and blues of Real Rockin Papa to the lighter swinging jive sound of Coquette and the jazzier instrumental of Jimmy’s Jive.

The pace is slowed with My Lonely Room a late night drown your sorrows with a shot or two man left by his lover song complete with agonising wails and forlorn screams. This mood is not sustained long as the piano on Louisiana soon lifts your mood.

The album drifts nicely from the raw R & B of late ‘40’s and early ‘50’s to lighter rock n roll rhythms. My favourite tack is the closing Bottoms Up a jumping hot little drinking tune sure to put you in the party mood.

Genuinely enjoyable rock n roll party music.
